The delegation of the Paris 2024 returned to Paris on Friday.

Paris, which has hosted two previous Olympics, will stage the event 100 years after its last Games in 1924 while Los Angeles will also organise its third Games after 1932 and 1984.

Two other U.S. Olympic host cities, Squaw Valley, Calif. and St. Louis, Mo., also participated in the salute.

The IOC decided in July to award both Games at the same time, following the withdrawal of four of the six cities bidding for the 2024 Olympics, amid concerns about the size, cost and complexity of organising the world's biggest multi-sports event.

North Korea's International Olympic Committee member, Ung Chang, said he hopes the Olympics will go on as planned, but that nobody knows whether South Korea will be safe for the Olympics.

"I think people are so excited to bring the Olympics back home to Los Angeles".

They followed that up with the Games of the 23rd Olympiad, in 1984. Both cities are very enthusiastic about the Games and are promoting the Olympic spirit in a fantastic way'.

Los Angeles promised to deliver a low-priced model for the Olympic Games and would make LA 2028 one of the greenest Games in history.

"It's a strong drawcard over other sports and we're already seeing that with recruitment. We can host the Games with less stress and lower cost", said Sykes, who has a long background in conservation and environmental stewardship.

Paris is planning to use the Stade de France, built for the 1998 World Cup, as the main Olympic Stadium, whereas London and Athens both had to build stadiums.

"SNCF Group has built up an enviable track record as the official transport operator for major global sporting events including the Rugby World Cup in 2007 and UEFA's European Football Championship in 2016", said Mathias Vicherat, SNCF Group Deputy Managing Director. "We are going to get a different level after September 13", said Sykes.

Former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is confident that next year's Winter Olympics in his native South Korea will be safe and successful, despite tensions surrounding North Korea's nuclear weapons program. Anita has been an inspirational leader of the LA 2028 team, and we are extremely proud to see her elected as Vice President for the second time in what has been a magnificent career.
